We are experiencing a period of absolutely perfect weather (and no bugs yet), the trees are finally all in leaf and the lake is gorgeous. Come on out! blue on blue
The ice is slowly receding and melting. There is enough open water from the stream and along in front of the resort now for the water fowl to enjoy. Two Loons returned, along with several ducks and geese. We watched an Osprey successfully fishing. We have been enjoying the sunny weather and getting lots of work done in preparation for opening in a few weeks.
We are looking for part-time, casual help from May through September. A small, rustic cabin is provided and 15-20 hours of work per week would be required, with a stipend paid. Work includes yard maintenance, mowing, weed whacking, cutting & stacking fire wood, and some assistance with other resort tasks such as cleaning boats. Best suited to a young person or young couple ( for help with cabin cleaning). There is ample time for seeking other work with other local businesses, or to travel and enjoy the region. Contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking forward to meeting new guests and seeing our regular guests this coming summer. We plan to open May 18th. Please email us to reserve a cabin or camp site. Our email address is: email@example.com The new, improved ferry service from Port Hardy to Bella Coola will be in place this summer, with a new ship, a longer season and more frequent sailings. If you are interested in seeing the beauty of the wild BC coast, be sure to book early with BC Ferries.
We are now closed for the 2017 season. We will re-open mid May 2018. We are taking reservations throughout the winter, via email and phone. We look forward to seeing all of our guests next summer. Thanks to all who made the effort to get to us this summer during a difficult year. Have a great winter.
The fishing has been terrific and fall is in the air. We are having cool, foggy mornings, but the sun burns it off by 9 am and the fish are jumping.
After a long, hot, smoky summer we finally have clear skies and crisp mornings. We have been very fortunate to not have been hurt by the wildfires burning throughout the region, other than loss of business from all of the highway closures, evacuation orders and alerts. That all seems to be in the past now, the orders have been lifted for the communities along highway 20, and the highway is fully open again in both directions. It looks like beautiful early fall fishing conditions, as usual for September. We have been housing/feeding helicopter crew here, and are now looking forward to seeing our regular September guests again. Happy Fishing!
Ice off was May 5th this year. It went very quickly that week. The season started out with the Nimpo to Anahim Lake Canoe race, May 13th, along the Dean River, complete with several portages and icy cold water! The challenge was won by Richard and Leah Simon, the owners of the Nimpo Lake General Store. There was a Fishing Derby over the May Long weekend, which was well attended and followed by a dance at the community hall. Our long-time, early bird guest, Helmut, is here again fly fishing in his favorite spot. We are busy finishing up renovations on the Hilltop cabin, which will be done by June 1st. When it is done I will post the photos here. We are also having the front yard (the hill in front of the main building) landscaped. There is a machine out there now, with a talented operator, doing wonders moving around large boulders and soil. We are widening the turn around by the Pioneer cabin and boat launch, creating rock gardens and raised beds, and a fire pit area.
